Our Story

Welcome to Cottage Industries.

Since our establishment in 1996 in downtown Half Moon Bay on the beautiful Northern California coast, our goal has been to provide discerning customers with exceptional handcrafted American-made furniture and home accents. We firmly believe that well-made furniture crafted from native American hardwoods using traditional joinery methods not only withstands the test of time but also represents a sensible investment for both you and our planet.

By using American-grown hardwoods we prioritize environmental sustainability. Utilizing domestically produced sustainable hardwoods also reduces energy consumption during transportation compared to imported alternatives. We are committed to making environmentally sound choices and ensuring that our products do not end up in landfills after just a few years of use.

These pieces, meticulously crafted in our coast-side workshop, showcase the organic natural beauty of American hardwoods. In addition to our own creations, we also feature reclaimed barrel furniture and home accents, all handcrafted in the US.
